Kuiu just sent out a post about the passing of their founder Jason Hairston. No official reports on what happened. There is some speculation as to what the cause was but thatís not the intention of this post. Regardless......a huge loss to his family foremost. Prayers with his family and colleagues. His accomplishments in the business world and hunting market were pioneering. I enjoyed following his videos and podcasts and am a huge fan of his product. Rest In Peace sir!

It was on Instagram earlier today that he committed suicide just after a sheep hunt, Not confirmed and terribly sad in any circumstance. He was obviously a talent with clothing co-founding Sitka then KUIU. His performance hunting clothes have changed the game completely for me.

There's all kinds of rumors. Here is him and Don Jr hunting Stone sheep last year.

Pretty sure he was hunting caribou with his dad and son Cash. He had talked about CTE on a few pod casts. He was a professional football player also until he btroke his neck.

So sad.. Saw where it said he died after the sheep hunt and possible CTE, but not sure if that's fatal and would lend to the suicide.

Prayers to his family and friends. I've seen a lot of different rumors floating around on what happened, but hopefully something will clear a lot of those rumors out. Sad deal regardless.

CTE, at least what we know about it now, can lead to severe depression and several former p,Ayers have committed suicide to later be diagnosed with CTE.

Geez. This is truly a tragic ending and I appreciate the truth. My hunting buddy hunted with Don Jr many years ago for a week in GB. CTE is not a joke for some apparantly. His wife was and looks incredible and kids had a great life. Something had to have happened we won't know about... He only played 1 year in the NFL but said he played with his head down the whole time. Jr Seau did the same thing and others. Most of us will never understand I guess...

Heck of a couple things to speculate on. How do you label him a coward but you start a RIP thread about a thug who died of a drug overdose? confused2

Because I label anyone who kills their self a coward and the other thread was started as a joke labeled RIP Eminem but they changed the title.

All Iím saying is all these dudes have CTE for like 10-20 yrs and all of a sudden they kill their self and it must be CTE. Sounds to me like an excuse.

Itís my opinion and I donít think CTE is the cause for these suicides. There are almost always other problems like debt or alcohol/drugs. Yet they blame it on CTE. I just donít buy into it atleast not yet.

Also how can you prove why they did what they did? I can see if they left a letter saying depression or whatever but how can you medically connect CTE to them pulling the trigger without a shadow of a doubt?
